EASY DOES IT, by Will Addison

Easy Does It is a narrative feature film (by EFI Productions and Worklight Pictures) set in a decrepit fantasy world of 1970s Southern Americana. The story follows two wild best friends- Jack and Scottie, who turn to crime to escape from an oppressive small town life. They tear across the Southwest, hostage in tow, searching for the American Dream as they attempt to rob their way to the imagined utopia of San Clemente, California.

The filmmaking team is comprised of 100% Louisiana residents- most of whom are University of New Orleans film alums. Directed by Will Addison.

Battlefield: Home is a feature-length documentary about the issues that impact our veterans and families when the call to duty ends.  As our country learns the cost of war through IEDs, TBIs, and PTSD, the story of the individual's struggle can often become lost in a world of acronyms.  Battlefield:Home introduces us to real veterans and their real struggles.

Uniquely Clarence, a documentary by Gene Fredericks

Clarence John Laughlin is the most accomplished New Orleans photographer you've never heard of.  Lauded by many as the father of Surrealist photography, Laughlin's layered, symbolic and evocative images use Louisiana as a starting point for soulful exploration.  But this talented photographer, rare books collector and Quarter denizen may have been his own worst enemy. This experimental documentary seeks to uncover the depth of imagery and irascibility that made Laughlin Uniquely Clarence.
